We had the house in joint names, he paid house hold bills (but I have since learned he has not been doing this) and I paid the mortgage which I have done.
We have sold the house, cost of solicitor, estate agent etc I paid. Because house is in joint names he is entitled to half the proceeds that are over.
However, I have been held responsible for his debts with the bank as they have been unable to contact him.
I also had an account at another bank in my married name only, which when I left he received the new card and obtained the pin number emptying the account and running up an overdraft. This I have also cleared.
I just want to know during my divorcee proceedings can I hold him responsible for the debts that I have paid on his behalf.
